Writing Update

I'm still working on my epistolary novelette, The First Road To Hell. It's almost there; just a few additional scenes to add, then it'll be ready for a final edit. I have a couple of publishers in mind to approach so we'll see how that pans out.

Recently, I downloaded the trial version of Scrivener. It's a terrific writing tool, exactly what I needed. Lately I've been trying to outline more (I was always a "panster" came it came to writing novels, but my approach needs to change to suit the changes in my writing technique and the general lack of writing time I have at my disposal). I'm using the software to work on a novel, tentatively titled Things Begun Bad. Hopefully it'll help to get me back into the novel-writing groove...

I have three new short stories to submit - responses to invites from kind editors. I've written all three of them and just need to go through the final editing process. I honestly believe that the short stories I'm producing now are among the best I've ever done. I've learned a lot over the last couple of decades and I hope it shows in the work.
